Firefighters and members of the rescue services of Moscow organized a humanitarian event on December 27 to congratulate the patients’ holidays at the Children’s Hospital Morozovskaya Dgkb.
The firefighters and rescuers masked as Santa Claus descended from the roof of the hospital with the help of special equipment and appeared on the windows of the hospital rooms of the children who cheered them with enthusiasm.
A video of the event was posted on the Instagram profile of the Russian newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda.
“The emergence of unusual guests at the hospital is not a coincidence. These days we are celebrating five years of the existence of the Good Winter Festival “Winter in Morozovka,” reads the press release.
Most of the children staying at the hospital must not move between large crowds and mass events and are not able to experience the New Year’s euphoria in Moscow, so in this way the festive magic came to them.
